What is the best part about your on-campus community?

I think what sets the students in my community apart is their love of learning. They are willing and open to dialogue about ideas and concepts that they are learning in class, and are willing to take the time to reflect and draw connections between other aspects of their life. I think that this happens in other communities, but I am willing to wager that this happens almost daily here in the HRC.

What does authentic Christian community mean to you?

I think it's all about being transformed daily into the image of God through living life with each other. This transformation happens as we submit ourselves to Christ and to each other. I also think it's about hospitality. We need to provide a welcoming space for everyone to experience Christ's redemptive love.

What is your favorite part about being an RHD, Resident Chaplain, or FIR?

I lots of favorite things about being a RHD here at Baylor. I love being a part of the Honors Residential College. I think it's a great community with solid students and a lot of great things happenings. I also really enjoy getting to work with the Community Leaders. I think they are exceptionally brilliant and I consider it a joy to get to work with them. The last thing I enjoy is the incredible people that I have the opportunity of working with on a daily basis. I think Baylor attracts a lot of quality people to the positions here and it just makes my job that much more enjoyable.
